PIES on 4 items

Done by: Neo Wei Hong

Laptop Bag

P: My laptop bag is a black one which has a similar in shape and design as my school bag, except that it is much more bigger and has a space for putting the laptop.
I: I need to know which laptop allows me to keep both my textbooks as well as my laptop.
E: I was very happy when I had bought my laptop bag and relieved when I found that I had chosen the correct laptop bag when I attended school as I was satisfied with the results and the comfort it gave.
S: I could share my experience on buying my bag with my friends and make my friends understand me better. This helps to build up closer friendship.

Something given to me by someone older

P: What I am going to share about the thing given to me is a small wallet given to me by my father about 2 to 3 years ago.
I: Although it is small to me now, it still allows me to put the coins I once collected from other countries from the world.
E: I felt rather lucky to have received the wallet as its small size allows me to carry it around easily and conveniently so that I can show them to my friends.
S: Besides having a closer family bond, having received the wallet also allows me to build a closer relationship with my friends as I can show them my wallet and let them know me better.

Taking a ride in an MRT train

P: The experience I gained from taking rides in an MRT train were rather memorable one as I was amazed at how the train took commuters around Singapore at such a fast speed when I looked out of the window and saw how much faster the train traveled than the vehicles on the road as during my first ride. I also got to view other scenery outside the window of the train at a high point above ground level.
I: This experience gained from taking the MRT train has taught me important educational lessons such as to care for other commuters inside the train. For example, the train ride has taught me to care for the pregnant, the elderly and the disabled. We should give up our seats to these commuters who need the seats more than us.
E: I can remember how thrilled I am when taking the MRT train, especially during the first ride, when I learnt the many important lessons as mentioned above.
S: From taking MRT rides to travel with my family and friends, we could all enjoy the ride together and learn important lessons. We could socialise with the other commuters in the MRT train and get to know more about them and where they are traveling to in the train.

Watching a Documentary or Movie

P: This is a movie entitled "Sherlock Holmes" that I have watched with my friends from my previous school during the December School Holidays in "Golden Village" Cinemas at Jurong Point. This movie is one with some exciting scenes and some humorous scenes.
I: I believed my friends has chosen this video because although some parts are quite illogical, it is has quite a good storyline and has a mixture of many different scenes and events. This movie has allowed me to relieve some of my stress.
E: I was felt very happy when I went to watch the movie (although I spilt some drinks on my bag before the movie during lunch) as I was able to socialise with my other friends and express my thoughts and feelings.
S: By watching this movie, I believe I have known more about my friends and to be more careful in the future.

Week 3: Understanding 'Research' (part 1)

Done by: Neo Wei Hong

1. To research is to investigate and find out about more information on a project. We usually research on a project or topic etc. which we do not understand.
2. Researching is very important as we can actually find out more about what we actually learn in school. It allows us to learn through many different ways such as through the internet, newspapers or magazines etc. Without research, we would not be able to learn more than what we could actually learn.
3. To conduct a good research, we must first know what we want and what it is related to. Next, we can use search engines on the internet or learn from other sources such as books and magazines. We can not only search for the information we are looking for but also search for the information that is related to the project. After we find information, we must find out whether it is relevant and accurate enough because in order to conduct a good research, we will need to find the best articles and information we can obtain. After finding the required information, double-check with other sources to ensure its accuracy. Lastly, we have to edit the information such that we only keep the key points we want. Only can we conduct a good research if we follow these steps.

ADMT Lesson 1: Personal Reflection

ADMT to me is a rather important subjects to me as it helps us to express our creativity as well as to showcase our other skills. It also helps us to know the world's progress and lets us care more about the world as well as think of ways to improve it. In overall, I believe that learning ADMT can let students to think of keeping the world moving forward. In school, I would like to learn skills like sketching and creating of things or software etc. I would also like to expand my creativity. Below is my sketch which shows how life would be like without ADMT. (Please click on the picture to have a clearer view.) Without modern technology, people cannot build buildings and therefor have to find natural places to live in. Without art, media and design, people cannot record things down in computers (in the cave). Everything will have to be made by hand using natural materials (eg. clothes using leaves, pot using stone, weapons using stone or metal, heater using rubbing wood and making fire etc.)(Click on the picture to have a clearer view.)
